Midwest Gardening

These daffodils were just about to open in the garden BUT with temps getting down to the 30's that night I cut them and brought them in.

ACCEPT NO IMITATIONS......At least for this project!! I wish I could remember who's blog I originally saw them (if it was yours or you know, PLEASE tell me so I can give credit where credit is due) when I say them, I mean these(the herb cylinders)....
I LOVE the uniform look of all 3 like don't get me wrong, I'm a mix and match kinda girl BUT these below just looked wrong....
Just a glass approx. 12" cylinder filled with dirt, topped with a kitchen cutting herb garden of choice and labeled with Dollar Tree chalkboard adhesive panels. Simple, FAB and inexpensive! For all of this....
It was only $5.00 INCLUDING seeds!

As long as I am sharing my window herb garden, I figured I'd also share my happy collection of white and glassware. Vintage glass bottle made in Italy adorned with a pearl "ornament", Mother Mary with my great Aunt's Rosary and a soldered charm that reads "I am not perfect, just forgiven", vintage glass door knobs and a pair of brass hands(which I'm thinking of painting white) to hold my rings when I do dishes.

The Climb

Hi Y'all and WELCOME to my blog! This blog was born because of the NEW and EXCITING changes occurring!

The brick and mortar opening of Object of Maya*ffection. As I am preparing to set up shop Miley's lyrics from "The Climb" are echoing in my head....

"I can almost see it, that dream I'm dreaming..."

See, it's been MY DREAM for at least the last 10 years to open my own boutique and it's finally happening!! Follow me on my journey!
